Scouting Report

AssetsA strike thrower who keeps the ball down in the zone, he mixes his pitches nicely. He knows how to set batters up and displays good intestinal fortitude on the bump.
FlawsInjuries have been an issue for him. Also, he lacks a truly dominant pitch so he can be a little bit too hittable on occasion. Doesn't induce enough groundball outs, too.
Career potentialDecent right-hander with a little upside.
